I was “complaining” before that there is some kind of “very beautiful devil” lives in FM radio broadcasts. I can’t figure out why even when they broadcast the recordings from the CDs that I know very well then thier broadcasts impact t more musical then the same CD played at my “reportedly better” CD playback.
Just now the WHRB 95.3 broadcasted the Marc-Andre Hamelin plays of the Scrabin’s Sonata #1. I have this CD, know the peace very well and although I generally like what Hamelin did with it I never hold this performance in any pedestal and I never get form it that “convoluted magic of the Scrabin’s mind”. The WHRB ran the First Sonata right from the CD and for a first time the Hamelin’s Scrabin really “got” me. It was as magical, as complicated, as hypnotizing, as mysterious and as secretive as Scrabin should be…
What the hell going on with the FM and why the FM loads so much “contextual pressure” into reproduced music?
